Raisin Bran Muffins

Author Serving Up Southern


  • 1 18.7oz box Raisin Bran cereal
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 quart buttermilk
  • 1 cup shortening, melted


  1. Combine the cereal, flour, sugar, soda, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the remaining ingredients. Stir just until moistened. Over stirring will ruin the texture. Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 weeks.

When ready to bake:

  1. Spoon into a greased or paper-lined muffin tin, 2/3's full. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Recipe Notes

These are best if the batter sits for a least an hour before baking.
